Members of the Watford Observer Camera Club have been busy with their cameras interpreting a new theme to kick off 2024.

'New year, new start' is the latest challenge for our talented photographers and as well as celebrations to mark the arrival of January 1, it has also been illustrated in a variety of other ways as you can see by scrolling down this page.

The Watford Observer Camera Club is a Facebook-based group.

It is open to all photographers, from those who snap pictures on their phones to professionals who capture perfect shots with specialist equipment.

Every four weeks usually, members of the camera club are set a new challenge, a theme is selected and then the work starts for our talented photographers.

Search for Watford Observer Camera Club on Facebook. Ask to join the group and we’ll accept you.
